Develop and implement new integrated strategies for a sustainable development at neighbourhood level.


URBACT RegGov Final Conference 2011 par urbactSome European cities and regions, like Duisburg and North Rhine-Westphalia, have gained long-lasting experiences in trustful and efficient co-operation between cities and their regional authorities. For other European partners, such co-operation constitutes a new challenge.

The RegGov Network brings together both types of partners, involving cities from Northern, Western, Southern and Eastern Europe. It intends to use the expertise and know-how which is available amongst the RegGov Network-partners to support the development of new and improved forms of co-operation on the local level as well as between the local and the regional level.

For each city, a tailor-made Governance Model and an Integrated Local Action Plan for (at least) one of the city’s most deprived neighbourhoods will be developed. This will be done in close co-operation between the City and the Regional Authority and with a strong involvement of local stakeholders from the target neighbourhoods. The co-ordination of all relevant key players in urban and neighbourhood development is an important topic.

The European Commission has assigned the Fast Track Label to the RegGov Network which is an additional incentive for a particularly close co-operation between the Partner Cities and their Managing Authorities when elaborating Local Action Plans.

Integrated action plans

An Integrated Action Plan (IAP) is a policy instrument that is produced by Action Planning networks within a period of 12 - 14 months after the beginning of their activities. The aim of the IAP is to respond in a concrete way to a urban challenge, which is common to all involved cities. Each partner city develops its own IAP, so all plans are unique in terms of local circumstances, territorial coverage and, most of all, the context in which this tool is proposed to be implemented. The creation and validation of this instrument relies in a collective undertaking, designed to strengthen commitment and to increase the prospect of sustainable delivery. In this sense, every partner city must establish a URBACT Local Group (ULG), in order to gather implicated stakeholders to co-create and participate in this process.Thus, the IAP reflect and integrate all ULG members' knowledge and learning from transnational exchange.
